A Christmas sonnet

What a lovely morn concealed in radiance! With melodious rhymes sung in ecstasy. What a pleasant evening spent in ambience! With candles glowing in joy's embassy.

What a time to mark a pleasant holiday! Its nothing more

I heard an old old Christmas song of peace on earth we shall achieve. I heard an old old Christmas song of joyful people who did grieve. I heard an old old Christmas song of pain eternal we shall leave.

Christmas in war-torn Africa

I woke up early on a Christmas morn. Gladly waiting for Santa before dawn. Looking through blinds in anxiety I'd torn, I'd hoped to see him approaching my lawn, in costumes in previous years he had worn. But in disguise he came with a French horn, playing elegies of demons unborn. Wheat, barley, oats, rice and grains of sweet corn filled his socks for a land which was war-torn. I'd thought the usual Santa would return. But a different Santa came to fore-warn me of a nagging menace that had drawn my nation to the brink, and seeks to drown her in

To my love at Christmas

I'll spend this Christmas with none but you. A time we'll relive old times anew, in ecstasy on fifth avenue. From nightfall until the skies turn blue, fun will bid boredom a last adieu. In this yuletide our love will renew vintage affections beheld by few, void of any pretentious residue, because this Christmas is all about you.
